Siri: New iPhone Voice Recognition App

Artificial Intelligence just got a little more savvy.

Siri is a brand new iPhone app that not only contains voice recognition capabilities, but it can also interpret what is being said.  You can plan your day with it by asking where the best restaurants are near your house, what the weather is like, what’s playing at the movies and more.  You can set up dinner reservations, order theater tickets, or book a taxi.

Let’s say you ask Siri where you can get sushi in Indianapolis.  You can be as broad as saying,”Where can I get some sushi around here?”  It will bring up multiple answers, with reviews, maps, and contact information.  You can ask it to remind you to buy milk after work, and it will send you an email.  This app also adapts to your preferences over time.  It’s the ultimate planner!

This is app is available for FREE on iTunes, and though right now it’s only built for iPhone 3GS, the Siri website claims to be working on versions for the iPod Touch and iPhone 3G.
